There is no single special body of law or statute which defines this specialism. Rather, practitioners in this area require a sympathetic ear and to have a general awareness of the needs of landowners.
At Barlow Robbins LLP, we have a long-established practice. Our solicitors have acted for individual farmers and private landowners over generations. We pride ourselves upon the relationships we build and the trust which our clients place in us. When those solicitors retire the baton is passed to the next generation, just as it does with our clients, within their families.
We have many different specialists within our firm and can put together the right specialists needed to give you the best advice.
Whether you are an individual landowner who has taken to life in the countryside or whether you are directly involved in farming or equestrian business, there will be a great deal of law to consider.
Our Agricultural Law department is there first to listen to you and then to identify your needs. We can help put together effective solutions for you.
Your real estate is important to you and may have been in your family for generations. Have you made a Will so as to ensure that the farming business and land is transferred to the family members intended? Not every family member may wish to be involved in the farm. We will work with our Probate Wills and Trusts department to help you formulate the best strategies for succession planning.
Whether you have pastureland, or land put to equestrian use, or a piece of woodland or a business based around forestry. We work in all sorts of property matters.
Our work is very varied and our people have a breadth of knowledge ranging across property law, planning law, tax law, company law, as well as having an understanding of rural life generally, in order to be able to identify the best team of specialists for you within the firm to advise you.
